One of the easiest ways to make your voice heard is to fill out our bimonthly surveys, called Sound-Offs, from which Student Government gets much of its student feedback.
Visitors are always welcome at Senate meetings, which take place at 5:15 pm on Tuesdays, twice a month. You may make announcements or ask questions at the very beginning of the meetings, and many senators hang around after meetings to further discuss issues with their constituents. Snacks are provided!
I Heart UT Dallas
I Heart UT Dallas began in the spring of 2009 as a Heart Health Awareness Fair in the Student Union and continues to expand each year. Activities of the fair include a 5k run, fitness topics, stress management consultations, nutrition tips and more.
Student Government participates in and hosts many events throughout the school year. If you are not a senator but would like to help out, let us know!
Become a Senator
The primary way to become a senator is via elections, which take place in March. If you wish to be a part of Senate, you should campaign either as a member of a ticket or independently for a Senate seat. Seats are dictated by school (e.g., EPPS or NSM) and year (e.g., Freshman, Sophomore, etc.). If seats are vacated, some senators may be appointed. See the application for appointment.
University-wide committees are made up of faculty, staff and students working together to address issues and concerns ranging from academics to facilities to commencement to parking and more. Make a difference; contact the SG office if you're interested in serving. Find out more about the different University-wide committees.
